I have dealt with the people at Shultz`s many times in the past,and I find it hard to believe that anyone that works there would intentionally mislead anyone like that.I am sure that they still have a stack of regulation books there and heck they are all hunters.

100% legal
Just make sure you have your orange on, also remember your safety zone will be smaller than the gun safety zone. Opens up alot of new areas during gun season.

You can also use a crossbow, or an inline, or a flintlock. There is no rule that says you can't make it "harder" by taking a weapon more "primative" than a center-fire high-powered rifle.

You need to abide by the orange regulations for that season.

Why don't you go to that place and have them Flip open the Comic Book and READ it Outloud to you?

Have them read this part in the Comic Book, Seeing they DON'T Read it if they were telling your friend that!

So you don't need an archery stamp to kill a deer with a bow in the regular firearms season?
